hey guys,

so today i got a ticket near eastmall and dundas .... i was on dundas ave west....there are doted lines on the far right lane for buses and trucks i suppose...a car cut me off so i jumped into the doted lane where buses and trucks belong because i didnt have enough time to slow down and give him that spot...there are also cars and vans on that dotted lane...i had my left signal on because i wanted to get back into that lane....but these drivers didnt gimme space...so i put my right signal on and planned on making a right turn into eastmall road which was approximately 15meters away...a cop pulls me over quickly tickets me saying i didnt obey a sign

and that cop was in the far left lane on dundas...he moved 3 lanes over and stopped me :(

so im not sure what to do....ima g2 driver...ticket is $110 (-2points) as well

if anyone has advice please post

thanks in advance :D

fight the ticket, go to court and explain what happened. If you can remember details, now is the time to write them down.

No one ever "loses" points.....more of a video game you collect the points and eventually you will get a prize......an interview....or if you collected the bonus points you can hand in your licence.

You do not have to take it to court. You can mail it, with option 3 (I intend to challenge this ticket or something to that effect) box checked off. The courthouse location is at the back of your ticket.

IF this is your first ever ticket, I would say go into First Attendance and take your Driving Abstract with you, which you can get at a local MTO.

Explain yourself to him and ask for a reduction. He can/might offer you something to plead down to.

You can also ask for Disclosure before hand.

I rarely see a lawyer in traffic court, not saying they do not come. Things that I see are a lot of "outsourcing". Most times you pay the lawyer (ie $600) who then pays a paralegal ($300) to do the case for him/you......lawyer just made $300 by hiring the paralegal.

tamilrmx, you did not state what the sign says. Was it a bus lane during designated hours? I haven't been there in a while but I believe those signs are not valid, they have to be bilingual (info about this is on my site).

I suggest you
  • request a trial,
  • request disclosure,
  • ask for an early court date


They must provide a copy of the by-law to you which creates the bus lane. Chances are they won't and you will have an excellent opportunity to get your charge stayed.

You can fight this ticket. You just need to learn how.
